If you owe taxes to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and cannot pay the full amount owed, you may be eligible for an installment agreement. This agreement allows you to make monthly payments over a period of time until your debt is fully paid. To apply for an installment agreement, you need to complete and submit IRS Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request.
One of the options for submitting Form 9465 to the IRS is by faxing it. However, it is important to ensure that you send it to the correct fax number. Sending it to the wrong number may cause delays or result in your installment agreement request being rejected.
So, where should you fax your IRS installment agreement form? The fax number you need to use depends on the state in which you live.
If you live in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, or Virginia, you should fax Form 9465 to (855) 796-4524. If you live in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, or Wyoming, you should fax it to (855) 233-8559.
For residents of Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wisconsin, the fax number is (855) 796-4525.
It is important to note that faxing your installment agreement request does not guarantee immediate approval of your request. The IRS may take up to 30 days to process your application and notify you of the outcome.
In conclusion, if you need to fax your IRS installment agreement form, make sure to use the correct fax number for your state. Double-check the number before sending the form to avoid any delays or rejections. Remember that approval of your request may take some time, so be patient and wait for the IRS to inform you of the outcome.
